"No Troubles in Our House"

Riggs, Robert L.
October 1954
New Republic;10/25/54, Vol. 131 Issue 17, p8
The article refers to differences in the personalities of political candidates Thomas E. Dewey and Richard M. Nixon. Dewey first won his party's nomination for the President of United States at the age of 42 while Richard Nixon was nominated, and elected, to the Vice Presidency merely at the age of 39. Such early success has developed in each a hard, metallic go-get-them attitude towards the people with whom they deal. But Nixon, for all that he is an efficient young-man-on-the-make, has been able to retain a human warmth that Dewey could not keep because he never had it.
